Our goals continue to be offering a competitive playing opportunity for 14U, 16U, and 18U players with a wide range of experience from those relatively new to the game to those kids with many years of high caliber play. Quakes offers year-round playing opportunities. For middle school players preparing for high school and travel ball and high school kids looking for a competitive summer and travel team at 14's, 16's and 18's, the Quakes program is your destination for fastpitch softball.

Welcome Coaches


  Vanessa Chagoya    Breezy Bernard

Quakes Add New Head Coaches to 14A MS and 14A HS Teams Fall '17

Quakes Fastpitch is excited to announce two new head coaches with our organization this fall. Breezy Bernard and Vanessa Chagoya have joined the SouthBay Quakes to add experience and leadership to our 14A teams, assuring that each of our players maximizes her development and growth with the game. Both Breezy and Vanessa have played and coached at the Division 1 collegiate level as well as with club teams, and each woman brings tremendous skill, knowledge, and leadership. Quakes is excited to add women in coaching leadership roles, notably individuals who have both played and coached at the highest levels of the game.

Leading the Quakes 14A Middle School team is Breezy Bernard. Breezy was a 4 year starter at Santa Clara University before taking on the roll of an assistant coach for SCU the past two years.

Leading the Quakes 14A High School team is Vanessa Chagoya.  Vanessa played at San Jose State from 2005 to 2009 before moving on to coaching. For the last 7 years she was an assistant coach at Santa Clara University.

About Quakes

Quakes Fastpitch exists to develop fantastic softball players that share a passion for the game. Equally true is our emphasis on life balance with athletics, academics, and family. Our culture not only allows but promotes terrific performance in the classroom and on the field, young adults playing multiple sports and participating in activities beyond the athletic realm. A recent study from the American Academy of Pediatrics further supports our collective philsophy.

AAP Clinical Report (Link)

The AAP encourages young athletes to play multiple sports and delay specializating in a single sport until late adolescence. The academy advocates banning the practice of ranking athletes nationally and recruting for college before they reach their late high school years.

Data from the study shows that about 70% of kids drop out of organizated sports by age 13. However, the same research confirms that children who play multiple sports, who diversify their play, are more likely to enjoy physical activity and achieve their athletic goals. 

Quakes understands the demands placed on high caliber student athletes, and has created a model that aligns the goals of all those involved including the player, parents, coaches, and organization.  We champion commitment,  achievement and the work ethic required to be one's best. We understand it's crucial that players avoid over use injury and burnout yet maximize their individual and team performance, thriving in all areas of development. Through balance, organizational culture, and diversification, our players are doing great things and thriving.

This summer Quakes competed in over 35 different tournaments, includng ASA, PGF, USSSA and Canada Cup championship events.

High caliber play and development, elite academic performance, excellent coaching, and great sportsmanship are all key elements of Quakes culture.  

Please check with your teams about upcoming college recruiting seminars and play great as teams roll into summer season. We also encourage families to attend local college camps this spring/summer to foster relationships with those teams, coaches, and institutions.

As the academic year wraps up and final grades and college board results come in, please remember and embrace our philosophy that emphasizes world class academics coupled with exceptional athletic achievement. Work hard in the classoom, athletic training, and on the field and enjoy every moment to be your best!

Quakes Fastpitch "Scholar Athletes Spotlight" program recognizes players throughout the year, highlighting notable academic achievements and recognition!  
Quakes summer travel teams had cumulative GPA's over 3.5 with several teams over 3.8 GPA.  High achievement in the classroom and in the field is our program wide goal.  Players are asked to submit their final grades for the academic year 2016-17 by the end of June.
